Friday to Saturday.

Friday is my favorite day to go to the thrift store!  I guess I just like going out after work to start my weekend by sorting through old junk.

I found this little crewel gem yesterday! I kill most house plants so now I have a collection of plants that I can’t kill!

Purrito even approves!

Today we went to Seattle for major noms! We ate lunch at Wayward and then did some shopping. But then we stopped at Mighty O before heading home! I oinked it up and had two donuts! The vegetables I bought for juicing are glaring at me from the top shelf of the refrigerator.

Saturday eats.

Today Eric and I went to Wayward Vegan Cafe for some lunch!

We decided that we needed more food so we drove down to the market.

The market was super busy today! It was also super cloudy and very “Seattle” today.

And this is was the reason for going to the market…vegan cinnamon rolls. Look how big that thing is!

Outside of the market I spotted this lamp. Hang on sir!

There’s a gum wall near the market. Hey cute little raccoon!

Pretty sick, no?

When we came home this afternoon I decided to bake some chocolate chip banana bread…since I didn’t eat enough sweets today!…and I made some tea. I bought a vintage tea kettle yesterday at the thrift store. Super cute!

And the finished chocolate chip banana bread! This actually doesn’t taste very banana…y. Happy Saturday! What did you do today?

Wayward and Wayzgoose!

Today the Seattle School of Visual Concepts was having their annual Wayzgoose letterpress and print festival! Before the festivities began we stopped by Wayward Vegan Cafe with Jeff and Jamie for some lunch!

SVC Wayzgoose!

There was also steamroller printing. What?…you say? There were teams of printmakers inking up giant prints and then printing those with a steamroller. AWESOME!!

This team wore jumpsuits and helmets.

Local letterpress artists were selling prints and you could tour the classrooms. So much typeface!

This lovely print reminded me of a paint by number.

Prints were everywhere!

Prints!

More steamrollin’.

There was a competition between the steamrolling teams. The print on the left was the winner and was printed by Keegan Meegan from Portland, Oregon.

More steamrolled prints.

After the printing fun, Eric and I drove to a park that overlooks the city.

I brought home some goods from Wayzgoose. They had a press set up for visitors to print their own print to take home. This is the one I made!

I also entered the raffle they had and I was given this goofy print.

Wayzgoose announcement. Look at that paper!

I took a shot of the city with my Polaroid Land Camera.

Eric found this print of a squirrel and a bunny! It’s us!

I loved this little guy! “This is why we can’t have nice things.”

My NastyBeats bracelet arrived today! This were sold to raise money for our friend who was in a boating accident a few weeks ago. Nasty Beats is his nickname. He’s at home now and doing much better by the way!

Jamie gave me this little guy today.

It’s a squirrel windup toy that spins around and around…

And then sits up holding his nut! So cute and such a fun Saturday!!

Vegan foods and Seattle fun!

I had my morning cuddle session with miss kitten. About 30 seconds after getting out of bed today I fell down the last two steps on the staircase. Needless to say that woke me up!

Happy National Squirrel Appreciation Day! I saw this guy in the front yard this morning.

Most of the snow melted overnight so today we drove down to Seattle for some food and some shopping. We stopped at Wayward Vegan cafe in the U-District. I had a fabulous "chiggen" wrap and Eric had sun's over Seattle.

Eric did a little record shopping and then I wanted to go visit the Space Needle.

We also walked over to the Experience Music Project designed by Frank Gehry.

It was an oddly sunny winter day.

We stopped by the EMP gift shop to browse and because I knew there was a penny press machine there. I saw this fun Nirvana shirt. It's a rather nice design!

Penny press machine!

I only had enough change with me though to make one pressed penny! How sad.

While in Seattle I picked up the new thumb shifter for my bike that I ordered a few weeks ago.

I made some more Thai iced tea this morning. I made some Han Solo ice cubes to put in my tea. Fancy huh? I bought this mold to make Han Solo chocolates, but for now...it's an ice cube maker.

You have a memorable backside.

Today was a half day for us in the print shop.  It’s been busy beyond belief for months now and since the schools and many of the sports teams are on Christmas break we’ve been able to take a little bit of a breather.  Today we left work early and had plans to go to Seattle just to get out of Everett for a few precious hours.  Before we went to Seattle I finally closed my account with Bank of America!  I’m now banking with a credit union and there are no sneaky and frivolous fees to keep my money there.

Eric and I ate some lunch at Wayward Vegan Cafe in the U-District and then went across the street to Sidecar….the vegan grocery store.  It’s not a trip to Seattle if we don’t go to a record store so off to Ballard it was!  We shopped a little bit and I went into the worst consignment store ever.  It was all of the non-fun stuff in grandma’s attic.  Never again!

Lunch from Wayward! I tried the tuna-ish salad. It's nothing like tuna really, but it was super good. The "tuna" was actually a really well done chickpea salad.

When we got back to the car I was getting ready to sit down in the seat and I looked up the street on the sidewalk.  I saw a rather tall guy who was walking away from us.  I could have sworn that it was our friend Corby.  Here I tell you about Corby…

Corby was from the same area in Pennsylvania as us.  He was friends with Eric and that’s how I met him.  We would go out for tea or Chinese or one time we got really crazy and went to Knoebel’s Amusement Restort.  Corby moved to Seattle one month before we did.  A little over a year ago he left Seattle and spent some time on the east coast before moving to Hawaii.  He’s been there ever since.  The past few weeks Corby has been traveling up and down the west coast going to Tori Amos concerts.  I saw yesterday that he posted something on Facebook saying that he was in Seattle.  I said…”How long will you be here?”  He was sadly leaving on Sunday.

Back to my original story…I said to Eric that that HAD to be Corby.  I got out of the car and yelled up the street to him.  The gentleman kept on walking.  He started to cross the street so I quickly looked up Corby’s number and started to call him.  When this tall gentleman got to the other side of the street he stopped…looked at his phone…and answered it!!

IT WAS CORBY!  Good ‘ol eagle eye me!  I guess Corby has a memorable backside.  He crossed the street again and hopped in my car and we went back to the house he was staying at and talked for about two hours.  He just went for lunch at a local Indian restaurant and was heading back to the house when I spotted him.  It was a very weird and awesome way to find him and see him here!  If we would have been just a few seconds sooner or later we would have missed him.  I’m super happy I was able to see him before he goes back to the island.  I guess in a few months I’ll have to escape the cold and damp weather here and visit him!

 

Eric, me and Corby!!
